"Online conferences offer an effective alternative that is economical, environmentally friendly and convenient. These factors position online professional conferences as poised to emerge as a mainstream form of lifelong learning in all professions."
If you haven't been involved in organizing an online conference you have probably participated in one. What contributes to the success of an online conference? How can we improve the experience for all participants?
During this 2-week book discussion we will share experiences and advice on how to plan or participate effectively in an online professional development conference.
